Play by Play
Halftime: Auckland City 1 Waitakere United 1.
Apologies for the disruption. A connection error has wiped the first half, but to recap, Alex Feneridis beat Danny Robinson with a beautifully flighted free kick in the 11th minute to give Auckland the lead in a half they mostly dominated. The equaliser for Waitakere came in the 43rd minute from a Luiz Del Monte cross that eluded Tamait Williams who was under pressure from Allan Pearce.
Ivan Vicelich got a yellow card for protesting the decision in the aftermath of the goal to join Brian Shelley, Manel Exposito and Del Monte in Matt Conger's book.
